Nuage - "Soulfiction" (original mix) - (5:31) 117 BPM
Review: After revealing each exclusive track over the last month, Kry Wolf finally delivers his DNA collection. A way of showing his own roots and party passions while celebrating his peers and labelmates' finest studio creations, the mix is a great reflection of Wolf, his and Shadow Child's label and its talented roster. Highlights include Shadow Child and Friend Within's WOW-referencing "The Moon", Kry Wolf's percussion-pummelled twist on "Piano Weapon", Geoff K's floor-melting bass shaker "Dysturbed Trumpet" and NYTA's dangerously demonic vocal cut "The Call". Also included is Kry Wolf's mix that joins the dots between the many sonic shades. A great concept backed up by an immaculate collection; DNA is where it's at.

Tony Goods - "2 Scoops" - (5:34) 117 BPM
Played by: Mr Brainz, Majora
Review: Kry Wolf's Sounds Of Sumo celebrate five years of prize fighting with this superb 14-track newness of an opus. With cuts from some of the label's most distinctive members and new faces alike, the collection seeps freshness from every twist and turn... Bondax's silky two-step twist of Mak & Pasteman's "Heat", Somepoe's super-sharp-stepper "Late Night Bootie", the deep dubby tech squiggles of Tony Goods' "2 Scoops", Tee Circus's dangerously overweight warp session "Plus 8". The list goes on. Versatile, creative and overwhelmingly funky, here's to another five years.

Roter & Lewis - "Hang On" (original club mix) - (6:16) 116 BPM
Review: Listening to Miami 2014 it sounds like this year's WMC will be dominated by interpretations of classic US house. Prok & Fitch's "South Keys (original club mix)" is a storming tribal affair, while the key changes and heavy low end on My Digital Enemy's "Change" is reminiscent of New Jersey garage. Garage of a UK variety is audible on the rolling snares and rubbery bassline of Hot Since 82 's "Hot's Groove", but in the main, this compilation is US-dominated. Piemont's "Microsleep (original mix)" recalls the darkest excesses of Armand Van Helden house, replete with scary sirens, while the Kevin Knapp take on Richy Ahmed's "The Drums" is a clap-heavy Chicago jam.

Sunrom - "Evergreen" - (3:50) 119 BPM
Review: YouTube channel turned party brand Eton Messy has devoted much time over the last 12 months to building up its' record label. Here, it continues that approach via another periodic In:Season compilation featuring a 19-track collection of exclusive label cuts. As you'd expect, there are plenty of "future anthems" present, including the bounding heaviness of Gotsome's thoroughly filthy "Sound Suite", the dark, garage-influenced Afro-house throb of Martin Badder's "Ugulya Mandee", the acid-powered late night sleaze of Catchment's "Kornastone" and the ragged electro-house/deep house fusion of Gallago's "Left". Throw in a swathe of warmer and more melodious cuts from the likes of Howea, Alva, Grazze and Peasant, and you have a rock solid collection of contemporary club cuts.

Bicep - "Metro" (original mix) - (5:00) 118 BPM
Review: Toolroom sets out an ambitious programme for its annual Miami trip. Patrick Topping gets the party started with the diva vocals and crowd cheers of "Be Sharp, Say Nowt", a true good-time house tune, while a more considered but no less infectious take on vocal house is audible on The 2 Bears' "London Are You There?" and Bicep's wonderful electro-synth-led "Metro". However, this compilation isn't limited to house music: the OC & Verde remix of Eli & Fur's "Around You" is frosty Euro trance at its most memorable and Dubspeeka's "Lyssa" is a gorgeous piece of dubbed out, dreamy techno. Miami won't know what hit it.

Ferdinand Weber - "Nobody" (Frank & Friedrich extended remix) - (5:59) 118 BPM
Review: As per usual, the UK's Toolroom imprint has put together the definitive summer collection when it comes to tech-house and anything minimal. As you can see - and hear - there are 67 tracks on here, all from the very best and most coveted talent in the scene; Mark Knight features prominently, of course, alongside established house entities like Erick Morillo, Format: B, Sascha Funke, Nic Fanciulli, and many others. But, don't stop there, as there is plenty of new talent to discover in artists like SecondCity, GotSome, Marcellus Wallace, ANOTR, and many more. There are three continuous mixes available, also, one for each summer setting. This is BIG!
